Construction Strategies for Historic Buildings

Check out this article from Historic Preservation Officer Michelle Dodds in the most recent edition of Arizona Contractor and Community. She discusses the various options for residential and commercial construction. Find out what can work for you.

The Historic Preservation Office (HPO) works to protect and enhance historic neighborhoods, buildings, and sites in Phoenix. HPO works closely with the Historic Preservation Commission to identify and designate eligible properties and districts for listing on the Phoenix Historic Property Register. Protection is provided to designated properties through city review and approval of exterior alterations to buildings and demolition requests. HPO also administers the Historic Preservation Bond fund that supports a number of financial assistance programs for historic properties.
